Just this morning I was cradling my 5 year old, thinking back to when he was a newborn and realizing that these times are very few and far between (sigh).
I told him how I use to coo over him and kiss on him and how I will always have a place in my heart for my baby boy.
|Cutest baby in the world|
I am not really sure he got it. What I was hoping to impart, was that I was his biggest fan, and I am excited to see what becomes of him.
In starting a blog, it is the same journey. Our blogs are our babies as well. A different kind of baby, but we nurture them and love them and cheer them on and hope they will grow into the best they can be.
Unlike my children, which were very much planned, my blog wasn't. It just sort of showed up one day. I didn't really know what I was doing, or in fact that I would still be doing it 2 years later. But it is here now, and it is not ready to go away.
From the beginning, Little Blue Chairs was a place for me to share my projects, and maybe a little about myself, but mostly the projects. But now the project completion rate is dwindling, and I am starting work towards my design degree, so I think the blog will be changing, as I am changing. I'm just not sure exactly what that is going to look like.
In raising my children, I hope I allow them to be who and what they are. I want to nurture their dreams and teach them to be true to their inner selves. I want the same for my blog baby.
I am sure its inner self will reveal where it wants to go, until then I just need to give it love, attention and nurturing.
